Am I an agent of the devil?
EDITOR: If I was sent here by the devil to destroy a great nation, how would I go about performing such a monumental task? I think I would start my political career at the state level, where I can hone my political, social, and verbal skills until they are as sharp as razors. While I am doing this, I would be keeping my eyes on the highest office in the land. While running for this office, I would use my great speaking skills to woo and flatter the people. I would have them believing I am the savior of their nation, and the children in their schools would be singing praises to my name. I would lay my hand on the Bible, and take their oath of office, to up hold their Constitution, and to enforce the laws of the land, but it will be meaningless for I am an agent of the devil.
If I was sent here by the devil to destroy a nation, I would surround myself with a staff of people who are lawless, unscrupulous, and of very low moral character. I would set out to destroy the nation's health care system. With my smooth tongue, I would tell them lies, and make promises I know I can't keep for I am a deceiver and a liar. I would do this to promote my agenda for economic equality. I would take from the wealthy and give to the poor. I would watch while their insurance premiums sky rocket, coverage goes down, and deductibles increase. I will tell the people it is a good thing for now, the poor have health care. I would do all this to totally destroy the middle class. I would walk all over their Constitution. I would bypass their legislative branch of government. With my executive powers, I would create my own illegal laws. I would trample on the basic rights of the people. I would try to take away their right to keep and bear arms. I would try to destroy their rights to freedom of speech, and I would bridle their tongues, so all their words are politically correct. I would try to control the media, and I will infringe upon their freedoms of religion. When my eyes look up on the world, and I see war waged against Christians, I will look the other way for I am an agent of the devil.
If I was sent here by the devil to destroy a nation, I would give billions of dollars to other undeserving nations, and I would borrow and spend billions of more dollars on foolish projects. I would lead this country into a national debt they can never pay off. I would expand the power of all government agencies, and with their expanded power and new regulations, I will let them economically strangle small businesses. I would destroy the coal industry, with carbon rules and new taxes, to eliminate tens of thousands of jobs. I would not allow a pipeline be built a across this nation which would create tens of thousands of job. I would attempt to totally destroy their economy for I am an agent of the devil.
If I was sent here by the devil to destroy a nation, I would open the doors of my prisons, and release tens of thousands of illegal immigrants back into our society. Amongst them there will be murders, rapist, and thieves. I would let the veterans of this country suffer and die from lack of health care for more than six years. When the scandal breaks, and it makes national news, I will play dumb. I will tell the people, I never knew what was going on for I am a deceiver and a liar. As the story continues to unfold in the news media, and more details are made known to the public, only them will they know how many veterans I let die; for I am an agent of the devil.
If I was sent here by the devil to destroy a nation, I would promise the citizens of this nation, I will close our international southern border, and stop the invasion of illegal immigrants into this country. In reality; I will relax the security of the border of my country for I am a deceiver and a liar. I would make it very difficult for my border security to enforce the immigration laws. I would give these illegal immigrants amnesty. I would let them in by the tens of thousands with all their contagious diseases and health problems. I would give them all kinds of government benefits; while my own citizens go without. For I am an agent of the devil.
This is how; I would destroy a great nation if I was sent here by the devil. Have I deceived you? Am I really an agent of the devil, am I the devil himself, or am I just a man with a malevolent plan to destroy a great nation? This you will have to judge for yourself for maybe, just maybe; I am a deceiver and liar.
